It never ceases to amaze when one is privileged to view a truly special piece such as this artifact~ how does the artisan create a backdrop of specially oriented diamonds then inlay an additional floral bouquet on top of the pattern, all executed in a variety of exotic woods to create a work of art? Not to be outdone, the metalsmith was employed to mount bronze dore ormolu around the rim of the marble top down to the collars on the turned feet. Such pieces were designed only for the most wealthy-those that had more than enough discretionary funds to indulge in artistic accents for their homes.
Circa 1890.
